SplitCoastStampers is THE place to go for new techniques and fabulous tutorials. This wonderful tutorial about how to add images to candles inspired this teacher gift for the Mess Maker's preschool teachers:
Using the Mess Maker's class photo printed on tissue paper, I heated it until it bonded to the candle (using the wax paper method). Then I just added a simple bow and I was done. How easy and cute is that?
Just want to mention that I draw inspiration from others, and you are welcome to use any of my original ideas for your personal use as well... I just ask that you give credit where credit is due and that you don't copy or re-create any of the artwork posted on here for submissions to contests, publications or for profit. Please provide a link to this blog for any projects/ideas inspired by my personal designs. THANKS!!! :)
I'm a stay at home mom (aka "Household CEO") and have two happy, energetic and beautiful children and the best husband in the world! I have been paper crafting for ten years and I try to craft whenever possible, focusing on invitations and party decorations for my kids' (and my friends' kids'!) birthdays. Thanks for taking the time to stop by and visit!
